Volunteers needed for HSTM event!

HSTM Network Ireland is looking for volunteers to help run a HSTM event at the Dublin Festival of History 2018

It is envisaged that the event would be a type of roadshow where individuals would bring along household HSTM objects. These would then be photographed, placed on the web, information about them crowdsourced, and then a blog post on each produced.
For this project we will need a venue, a team, and a photography setup. If there is anyone interested in being part of an organising team for such an event, could you please contact Adrian.Kirwan@mu.ie or hstmnetworkireland@gmail.com, thanks.
